The Royal Diaries Series, through fictional diaries of young royals, makes history accessible to older elementary school students. In 1544, when Elizabeth I, daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, is 11, she receives a diary and begins recording her life and emotions amid palace intrigue and her uncertain position as third heir to the throne. She is the forgotten princess, often exiled by her father, whose love she yearns to win. Josephine Bailey reads with a haughty confidence. Her well-enunciated accent sounds royal as she mixes palace intrigue with preteen concerns of school and friends. The epilogue gives a useful chronology of the Tudor Age in England.
